Watch 9000+ Fork 800+

One font, 249 icons

In a single collection, Font Awesome is a pictographic language of web-related actions.

CSS control

Easily style icon color, size, shadow, and anything that's possible with CSS.

Infinite scalability

Scalable vector graphics means every icon looks awesome at any size.

Free, as in Beer

Font Awesome is completely free for commercial use. Check out the license.

IE7 Support

Font Awesome supports IE7. If you need it, you have my condolences.

Perfect on Retina Displays

Font Awesome icons are vectors, which mean they're gorgeous on high-resolution displays.

Made for Twitter Bootstrap

Designed from scratch to be fully compatible with Twitter Bootstrap 2.2.2.

Designer Friendly

Install FontAwesome.otf and visit the copy & paste page. Happy designing.

Screen reader compatible

Font Awesome won't trip up screen readers, unlike other icon fonts.

Pixel Perfection at 14px

Every single icon re-created from the ground up to be optimized for Bootstrap's default 14px.

Font Sub-setting

Thanks to @grantgordon and @johnsmclay, you can subset to get just the icons you need.

Better License

SIL open font license, MIT license for code. No more attribution required, but much appreciated.

40 New Icons in 3.0

Requested by the active community on the Font Awesome GitHub project.

New Styles

New styles for animated spinning icons, icons with 2x-4x size multipliers, icon borders, & more.

28% Smaller Payload

3.0 is smaller, even with 16% more icons. Crazy small if you subset just the icons you need.

You asked, Font Awesome delivers with 40 shiny new icons in version 3.0. New icons can be requested on the Font Awesome GitHub project. Or even better, you can contribute your own icons.

It's easy to integrate Font Awesome into Twitter Bootstrap, or even use it on its own.

Easy Bootstrap + Font Awesome Integration

Use this method to integrate Font Awesome with the default Bootstrap CSS.

  1. Copy the Font Awesome font directory into your project.
  2. Copy font-awesome.min.css into your project.
  3. Open your project's font-awesome.min.css and edit the font paths to ensure they point to the right place.

    The font path is relative from your CSS directory.

  4. In the <head> of your html, reference the location to your font-awesome.min.css.
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/font-awesome.min.css">
  5. Check out the examples to start using Font Awesome!

Custom Bootstrap + Font Awesome Integration using LESS

Use this method to integrate Font Awesome with Twitter Bootstrap using LESS.

  1. Copy the Font Awesome font directory into your project.
  2. Copy font-awesome.less into your bootstrap/less directory.
  3. Open bootstrap.less and replace @import "sprites.less"; with @import "font-awesome.less";
  4. Open your project's font-awesome.less and edit the @FontAwesomePath variable to point to your font directory.
    @FontAwesomePath:   "../font";

    The font path is relative from your compiled CSS directory.

  5. Re-compile your LESS if using a static compiler. Otherwise, you should be good to go.
  6. Check out the examples to start using Font Awesome!

Custom Bootstrap + Font Awesome Integration using SASS or SCSS

I have never used either, so let me know if the included SCSS or SASS files have issues.

Not using Bootstrap?

Font Awesome works just as well without Twitter Bootstrap.

  1. Copy the Font Awesome font directory into your project.
  2. Copy font-awesome.less or font-awesome.min.css into your project.
  3. Open your project's font-awesome.less or font-awesome.min.css and edit the font location to point it to your font directory (see above examples).
  4. Check out the examples to start using Font Awesome!

Need IE7 Support?

Font Awesome supports IE7. If you need it, you have my condolences.

  1. Get Font Awesome working properly in a modern browser.
  2. Copy font-awesome-ie7.min.css into your project.
  3. In the <head> of your html, reference the location to your font-awesome-ie7.min.css.
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/font-awesome.min.css">
    <!--[if IE 7]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="assets/css/font-awesome-ie7.min.css">
  4. Go complain to whoever decided your project needs IE7 support.

Many examples re-used from the Twitter Bootstrap documentation.

Use Font Awesome icons in:

  • Bulleted lists (like this one)
  • Buttons
  • Button groups
  • Navigation
  • Prepended form inputs
  • And many more with Custom CSS
Use a few of the new styles together, and you've got easy pull quotes or a great introductory article image. Or spinning icons for loading and refreshing content. Or fun big icons in multi-line buttons. Lots of new possibilities.
Spinner icon when loading content...

Inline Icons

Place Font Awesome icons just about anywhere with the <i> tag.

<i class="icon-camera-retro"></i> icon-camera-retro
Icon classes are echoed via CSS :before.

Larger Icons

To increase the size of icons relative to its container, use icon-large, icon-2x, icon-3x, or icon-4x.

Increase the icon size by using the icon-large (33% increase), icon-2x, icon-3x, or icon-4x classes.





<p><i class="icon-camera-retro icon-large"></i> icon-camera-retro</p>
<p><i class="icon-camera-retro icon-2x"></i> icon-camera-retro</p>
<p><i class="icon-camera-retro icon-3x"></i> icon-camera-retro</p>
<p><i class="icon-camera-retro icon-4x"></i> icon-camera-retro</p>
If your icons are getting chopped off on top and bottom, make sure you have sufficient line-height.

Animated Spinner

Use the icon-spin class to get any icon to rotate. Works best with icon-spinner and icon-refresh.

Spinner icon when loading content...
<i class="icon-spinner icon-spin"></i> Spinner icon when loading content...

CSS3 animations aren't supported in IE7 - IE9.

Bordered & Pulled Icons

Use icon-border and pull-right or pull-left for easy pull quotes or article graphics.

Use a few of the new styles together, and you've got easy pull quotes or a great introductory article image. Or spinning icons for loading and refreshing content. Or fun big icons in multi-line buttons. You can combine all of them in any combination to get lots of new possibilities.
<i class="icon-quote-left icon-4x pull-left icon-muted"></i>

If selected, you'll retain the CC-BY license to your pictogram and get attribution right here on the Font Awesome site.

How to Submit New Icons

  1. Download the icon-flag.pdf template.
  2. Open the PDF in Adobe Illustrator. You'll notice the file has dimensions of 60x56. This is exactly 4x the max icon size of 15 wide by 14 tall. The template is an example of the flag icon to use as a guide.
  3. Design your icon. In order to make it into the set, your icon must look pixel perfect. The easiest way to do this is to make sure your line widths in the template are some multiple of 4px. Diagonals are rough, too. Don't split pixels right down the middle, as they blur more when rendering. Zoom out to 25% to get a good idea of how it will render in the font.
  4. Submit your icon. Drop me an email at Make sure to use the subject [Font Awesome] [Icon Contribution] icon-name and attach your PDF file. If your icon makes it into Font Awesome (I'm keeping a very tight reign on quality), I'll ask what contact info you'd like to use for attribution.

Here's the plan for future updates.

I'm the lead product designer at Kyruus. I wake up every single day excited about my job. Why? Kyruus is going to change healthcare. No exaggeration.

What I love about Kyruus:
